At Jones Dance Ballroom Studios, dancers of all skill levels teach their bodies to spin, shake, and shiver with the self-expressing movements of multiple dance styles, including tango, foxtrot, salsa, samba, West Coast swing, paso doble, merengue, and beyond. Up-and-coming motion maestros can begin their journey to stardom and dancing with a pair of private lessons ($37.50 each). During both of the half-hour twinkle-toe tutorials, a skilled, supportive instructor will work one-on-one with you and carefully teach your feet how to woo the haughty ground with the stately swirls of a Viennese waltz, the dazzling blur of the quickstep, or the swiveling bobble-hips of the cha-cha. Once they've learned how to light up the dance floor with controlled-burn fires, students can showcase their sizzling steps to new dance partners during a 60-minute group class ($15; check the calendar for more information about specific classes and times).

Though princesses are hard to come by this side of the Atlantic Ocean, visitors to Once Upon A Fairy Tale mirror royalty in almost every way. The helpful staff outfits children sizes 4–16 in tutus, pageant dresses, necklaces, and tiaras, completing the regal transformation with glamorous eye shadow and nail polish. They also organize royal birthday parties, often hosted by one of the boutique's own costumed princesses who leads children through teatime, fashion shows, and seminars on the most effective way to wish upon a star. Parents join in the fun with mother-daughter dress-up sessions and father-daughter teatime, and the boutique lets guests continue their monarchy outside the boutique with a shop full of custom tutus and dresses.
